We’re team GentleBotz, an FTC team from the Newmancollege in Breda. Our group consists of 8 members from 14 to 18 years old. We come together at least once a week to work on our robot, but sometimes on the weekends and holidays as well. We learn a lot from each other but most importantly, we have a lot of fun together. Everyone has their own task in the team, from building to programming, keeping our website updated, and managing PR and sponsorships. We have a fun and diverse team with HAVO and VWO students from the 9th to 12th grade.
What is FTC?
FTC is a part of FIRST, an organization from the USA that aims to introduce young people to technology and innovation in a special way. This is done by building robots, according to certain standards and rules, which you then compete with. It is also the intention that you spread FIRST and STEM with other young people, schools, and companies.
